Andrew Benintendi can flash the leather.
The Boston Red Sox were trailing the Tampa Bay Rays 1-0 on Saturday at Tropicana Field during the seventh inning, and Benintendi kept a key runner off the base paths with an incredible catch in left-center field.
Shane Peterson ripped a missile into the gap that looked like it was ticketed for extra bases. But Benintendi, who started in center field, took off and made a leaping catch for the first out of the inning.
Take a look at the amazing play in the tweet below.
It turns out the Red Sox’s defense doesn’t suffer that much when Jackie Bradley Jr. enjoys the day off.
